Abstract

A targeted advertising system based on subgroups. Different subgroups are formed based on one or more subscriber characteristics, and different targeted advertisements transmitted to the different subgroups. In the Internet-environment, the subgroups are formed by utilizing multicast addresses. In cable-based and satellite-based systems, the subgroups are formed by node configurations. The targeted advertisements (504) may be transmitted simultaneousy with programming (508) and inserted locally, or may be inserted at a centralized distribution point (506) such as a router or cable television local head-end. An apparatus is presented which receives n program streams and m advertisements, and creates p presentation streams containing targeted advertisements, where p is greater than n.
